|Excellent drainage results in very few days of lost play throughout the year. The interest lies in the contract between the old and the new nines, and although not a long a course as some in the area, the visitor to Kintore cannot afford to be over-confident.
The first is one of the toughest opening holes in the North East then, having climbed the hill at the second hole and completed the third, it is time to embark on the new part of the course which, by virtue of being lined by trees, and criss-crossed by burns produces some very interesting holes.
The seventh is one of the best holes on the course, enquiring an accurate drive followed by a second shot over a burn which runs diagonally across the front of the green.
The eleventh is the longest hole on the course, made longer by the fact that it slopes upwards all the way to the green. Returning to the old nine, the remaining, six holes are short, relatively hilly and quite tricky, requiring good club selection, accuracy and a certain amount of good fortune, and your reward will be spectacular views over the river Don and stretching away to the Bennachie and Grampian ranges of hills to the north and south.
